The Wyoming Game and Fish Department is clarifying that, despite a U.S. Court appeals ruling last week, grey wolves in Wyoming are still protected and under federal management for the time being.
According to a statement from the Wyoming Game and Fish, Wyoming will not take over management of the animals immediately because of the legal process involved. So, until that process plays out Game and Fish reminds people that wolves are still considered protected under the Endangered Species Act and under federal management. This also means the taking of wolves in Wyoming remains suspended.
More details on this ruling can be found in the March 3, 2017 edition of the Star Valley Independent.
